'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Uwe Rosler Speaks On Nick Powell Rumours

Is there a bit of shenanigans at work where Nick Powell is concerned? Week after week since the departure of Owen Coyle as Latics boss stories have emanated from the Daily Mirror about Powell's imminent return to his parent club Manchester United

'Powell To Be Recalled By United' or 'Powell Wanted By Stoke/Everton/Fulham etc' and now we have 'Powell All Set For Hull', seems like someone is trying to either unsettle the player or cause a little friction somewhere, but it appears that Latics boss Uwe Rosler knows nothing about Powell's return, despite speaking on a regular basis to United boss David Moyes

Speaking to the Wigan Evening Post Rosler revealed - 'I don't know where that other stuff is coming from'

'I speak regularly to David Moyes at Manchester United - I have a very good relationship with him.

'He has always been very helpful to me in my career, and supported me during my time at Brentford when he was at Everton.

'I took a number of his players to Brentford, and it worked very well.

'And I think Manchester United are very happy with the progress that Nick is making with us.

'The things that have appeared in the papers, I have no control over that at all.

'I can only refer to the direct conversations I have had with David Moyes, and we will have further conversations on Monday and Tuesday.

'Once those talks have been had, I will know for certain what is going to happen.

'But so far there has been no indication whatsoever that anything has changed on that score.'

Personally I can't see the benefit of United taking the risk and allowing Powell to go to a Premier League club, he'll play nowhere near the amount of games he'll get if he stays put, the Premier League is also a massive step up from the Championship and although Powell has been nothing short of a revelation at the Latics this season, where he has been allowed to blossom, the Premier League is a different kettle of fish altogether

Shenanigans or not, we'll find out soon enough hey Mr Nixon

More from Nick Powell to come?

I thought it was a woman scorned, not a manager or pressman!
